Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Check the temp on the gauge when it does this, if the car heats up it shuts of on its on. I had a similar problem and it ended up being a defective Crankshaft Position Sensor (part is like $100). Apparently this is a common problem. I did the work myself, 28 year old woman with minimal experience.

Beside the ECM, there is an electronic device called immobilizer designed to turn off the pump to stop engine in case of a car collision preventing fire. When it is bad, it give a wrong signal when engine is hot or cold. Your case is at engine hot. Any shop with diagnostic tools or dealer can turn off this feature then you are OK. If they don't want to do that (safety violation) then you have to replace it. Before replace it, you can ask them just to temporally turn off to confirm the problem before a replacement.
